Support Tennessee Craft

Tennessee Craft is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to continue and create Tennessee’s fine craft tradition since 1965. With the help of our talented members, supportive donors, committed sponsors, and selfless volunteers we continually work to connect artists with the resources they need to grow in their careers—presenting the public with extraordinary, one-of-a-kind works.

Help us achieve our mission with a donation to fund critical programs and scholarships for artists. With your support we will work to ensure Tennessee makers and their handmade work are appreciated and celebrated for years to come.

All donations are processed through PayPal. (Note: You do not have to have an account to give through the PayPal portal.)

Make a Special Contribution to our Fair Awards

Join us in recognizing the skilled work of talented artists and helping build their résumés by donating to our Awards Fund.

100% of these specially designated gifts provide direct support to artists. These gifts will be compiled and distributed in the form of Merit and Best of Show awards (ranging from $150 – $500) at our upcoming Craft Fair. The more money we raise provides more awards for exhibitors of our Tennessee Craft Fair.

All donations are processed through PayPal. (Note: You do not have to have an account to give through their site)
